The 2021 Bahamas Charter Yacht Show scheduled for late February 2021 is postponed until 2022.
The Bahamas Charter Yacht Show Committee has announced today, “That after much thought and consideration to the charter yachts and crew participating, charter brokers travelling from abroad, and out of respect for the Government and people of The Bahamas during this COVID environment, the annual Bahamas Charter Yacht Show, scheduled for February of 2021 in Nassau, will be postponed until 2022. On February 25 & 26, 2021, there will be a gathering of charter yachts at Rybovich Superyacht Marina in West Palm Beach with the goal of showcasing charter yachts to the charter brokers of the industry. Representatives from the Association of Bahamas Marinas and The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism will be on hand to share itineraries and present the islands and marinas that cater to the yacht charter industry.
Yachts and top brokers will be treated to a Bahamian theme for the two-day event. The purpose of the gathering is to celebrate the charter yachts that travel The Bahamas and to educate the international brokerage community about the boundless charter opportunities and up to date travel information from around The Bahamas. Following 2021, it is our intent to host the event annually in Nassau.
The 2021 Bahamas Charter Yacht Show’s chairman, Joe Dargavage, of Romora Bay Resort & Marina, said; “This was an extremely difficult decision, and our charter show board thought long and hard before deciding what we should do. The fact that we had almost all brokers having to come in internationally, was a huge part of the decision-making process”. Once the decision was made, Rybovich proposed that we invite the yachts to their facility and showcase them under a controlled environment. The Bahamas Charter Yacht Show’s board found this to be a great solution that would allow the ABM to continue their marketing efforts to re-open yachting in The Bahamas.
The Bahamas Charter Yacht Show is comprised of a partnership with the Association of Bahamas Marinas, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation, and the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA). BCYS representatives will be on hand at the IYBA charter and broker’s open house events during 2021 to give updates on the Bahamas and stimulate interest in the 2022 event in Nassau.
